An incredible introduction to Japanese Whisky at an affordable price. The amazing flavor of spiced wood and notes of vanilla do not disappoint. This is my go-to whisky to share with friends who have never experienced a Japanese Single Malt. For the truly special occasions I bring out the Yamazaki 18, but for everything else this one is always a top choice.

I heard Japanese single malts were exquisite and i must say, its true. It tastes like it should cost a lot more. This should be shared with very close friends and family and they will look upon you with awe lol. I say that jokingly, but in all seriousness; it’s fanstastic! Now I have to try more.
